Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a highly impressive and unique country house. Set within stunning Northumbrian countryside and surrounded by grass parks and close to the magnificent Belsay Hall and Castle. This home provides a peaceful tranquil haven for any purchaser desiring privacy, yet with ease of accessibility to Ponteland and Newcastle upon Tyne. Beechfield is 5 miles north of Ponteland and 7 miles from Newcastle International Airport, serving many UK and European destinations daily. The city centre of Newcastle is 14 miles away, with convenient accessibility to the A19, the A697 and the A1 connecting throughout the region. Belsay village supports one of the region's finest primary schools, with high educational standards. There is also an excellent village shop. Championship golf courses are close by in Ponteland, Matfen and Gosforth Park. The area is renowned for its country pursuits, near several fine shooting estates and the Morpeth and Tynedale Hunt.



The acquisition of Beechfield Tower by the current owner in 1995 coincided with an extensive refurbishment of this fine building, as well as the construction between 1996 and 1998 of the fabulous Great Hall and a Gatehouse. The more recent conversion of the Estate Office also typifies the quality of the work carried out by the current owners of this lovely home. It enables a private business and management suite to be run successfully from within the grounds of the property, under high standards of security and surveillance. A Redcare integrated burglar alarm and fire alarm system links to the central station, together with external security lighting. Internally the house has a newly installed telephone system, which connects through the main residence, staff quarters and offices. The mature garden contains a champion sized all weather tennis court, a croquet lawn, beautiful walks winding through the mature woodland and a well stocked trout lake. The layout of the grounds, with a series of walled gardens is much admired; the formality of the principal gardens to the southern elevation has formed a superb backdrop for several charitable functions and weddings.



The sale of Beechfield Tower and its stunning grounds provides a highly unusual and rare opportunity. The successful purchaser will undoubtedly enjoy this beautiful historic building and the quality of such a superb setting.
